Billy Collins Poet? If what he writes is poetry - (there is no rhythm,rhyme nor reason to it) -then give me the Emperors clothes! Maugham writes short stories, Collins are even shorter and not as interesting. "But look the sun in russet mantle-clad walks o'er the dew of yon high eastern hill.' Don't compare him to Shakespeare. Blank verse by BC is just that. "Oh wid the Pow'r the giftie gie us
Tae see owr sels as ithers see us."
